Rufus Thomas: Rufus and The Funky Penguin

Roger St. Pierre, New Musical Express, 1 January 1972

RUFUS THOMAS was half-way through a busy tour the last time we met. This time round I caught up with him just two days before he flew out to Germany and, since I was out of town, the interview had to be a phoned one but there was no mistaking that friendly bubbling voice as Rufus enthused over the recent Doris Troy Show at London's Rainbow. I'd tried to speak to him then but couldn't get near him in the back-stage crush.
